You have to accept my offer and assign the task to me, then Airtasker will let us exchange phone numbers in the private messaging.
I do quotes all the time. I can help. On your measurement, if your option is to replace the wall with like for like, your task budget is insufficient by a lot. Airtasker have advised me I can not provide a quote outside this platform. I can submit an offer for your task budget so we can exchange phone numbers and address details if you like. You can cancel the task if you like.

Please do thanks Peter
I am a licenced and insured bricklayer and builder with civil engineering qualifications. What is the length of the wall, the height of the wall, the slope of the land, does the wall have piers behind it and how many? Are there any services near by like water, electrical etc? From experience, without seeing the site it is going to be hard to give an estimate on as you can't see underground into the footings. As you and I don't know what the likely cost is, maybe it's an option to create a new task for $5 then people can submit offers for that.

Peter, would you be willing to visit and provide a quote? The wall is approximately 15m x 1.8m and on a small slope. I need an experienced brick layer who can advise on the best solution.
Would need to pull down and start from scratch,
Any thoughts of a different style of fence ..
would the tree be getting removed so it wouldn't just happen again in a few years ?
That's why I suggested different racing style maybe
Thanks Des

Hi Peter, I do still need the job completed. I would firstly like a quote as I'm not sure if part or all of the wall will need to be replaced. Thanks
