SEO-wise, that site you referenced suffers from many of the same issues yours does, leading me to believe he's not really much for SEO, either.

So, just so you are aware, this is what your $300 seems to be getting you...
He'll put your current content in to this, hopefully licensed, theme:
http://themeforest.net/item/striking...p-theme/128763.

Again, as long as it's done right, the $300 is probably not far off from setting up a small site and plugging your content into it. The problem I see is that he just doesn't seem to be very good at doing it.
So what your saying is I should just keep what I have?

I think it serves its purpose. And I'm high on the SE list.

I'm not really sure a better website will pay off.

If it's a matter of paying him another round of cash, then I would just stick with what you have, fix the SEO issues, and add some content as you see fit.

As you said, you rank very well for your service area, so I would just do a bit of reworking.
