Probably somewhere in the $250-$500 range. You can do it yourself for less than $100, if you already have a valve spring compressor, even less. It isn't hard. It just takes working slowly and carefully because there are small parts than can fall into the engine. Use the rope trick i.e. feeding rope into the spark plug hole then pressing it against the valves with the piston. There are videos that show how it's done. Good luck.

Good to know! Any valve seal video for a v6 3.0 you recommend?

Here's a vid of the rope trick. this one is on a pushrod engine, but the technique is the same. On your car, you just remove the cam and rockers. After that, you'll need an overhead valve spring compressor. It's been a long time since I did mine and, actually, I think I used a write-up of the procedure instead of a video. Maybe this one. http://4x4wire.com/forums/ubbthreads.php/topics/332215/Re:_How_To:_Replacing_valve_st.html
