Options to simulate a 3-way switch

We have remodeled our kitchen lately and due to my wife's objections, we didn't switch our single pole primary light source to a 3-way wiring. My wife now recognizes that it was a bad idea to not getting it converted. The electrician, now asks for $200+ instead of $100 he would do it for, if we included with the electrical part of the remodel work.
Anybody have ideas of things like a wireless remote switches, etc. that would allow me to turn off a light from opposite end of the kitchen that is approx. 14 feet away. In the past I recall looking into these things but I can't find them now. Thanks.

There are wireless remote switches that would allow you to control the light from multiple locations. Leviton makes some.
