When it comes to working on my own car, I'm probably the biggest chicken in the world but, I too replaced my driver side door handle a few months ago and it just takes a bit of PATIENCE!!!!!
The first thing (and probably most tedious) is removing the window crank...
Next, unscrew the single screw which holds the inner door handle in place and then pull the inner door panel off carefully... the job can be done without the panel tools but, I'm sure they would have made things easier...
Once the panel is worked loose, you'll encounter a piece of plastic sheet, held in place by some tar-like adhesive.... I just got rid of that entirely... once all that has been accomplished, it's a simple matter of unscrewing the old broken door handle and replacing it with the new one...
$750 is an OUTRAGEOUS price to even, for a second, consider... Hell, you could almost buy another car for that price... $250 is not much better...
Take your time, don't get frustrated and you'll have it done in less then an hour...
